The PowerPlate makes it simple to bolt any windsurf board with a Powerbox style fin-box (or Tuttle or Deep Tuttle) to the common 4-Hole plate pattern found on most kite and windsurf foils today.
- Use the included bolts to screw the PowerPlate to the 4-Hole plate on your foil
- Mount to your windsurf board through the fin-box using your current fin-bolt(s).
- Fore & Aft fine tuning can be done with the multiple mounting hole system. Forward = quicker lift, Backward = slower lift
- The PowerPlate is made from 2 pieces of solid aluminum and includes an attached 3/16" foam padding for your board bottom.
- Be sure to use a Metric 6mm fin-bolt.
- Be cautious not to cross-thread the fin-bolt
- Be sure to get a least 12 complete turns into the PowerPlate. (Max # of turns is 16 or 3/4"). You may need a longer screw.
- Be certain to tighten the fin bolt hard enough to compress the foam. Check & tighten as needed.
- If your board has a big V-bottom, add extra foam to outer plate edges to add lateral stiffness.
- Use a leash regardless of your foil/fin-box setup. Impact with a log or other could cause your foil to sink.
- Adjust the head or plate mounting bolts to your preferred fore/aft position.
Wing Forward=More lift
Wing Rearward=Less lift (better learning)
